so, you are number 4 in the nation. should we be scared? do we have a chance? should we save the bus money and forfeit? is it cold inside the arena? how are the concessions? do you serve beer?

It's the coldest arena I've ever been in. Probably nothing compared to a Houghton January, but still pretty bad.


do you serve beer?

On campus facility, so no.


do we have a chance?

That's probably dependent upon ebola striking Big Rapids in the next week, but considering last weekend's performance, maybe you do have a chance.

Big triple-header weekend for Tech and Ferris. A pair of hockey games in Big Rapids where Tech would do well to earn a road split. Meanwhile, their undefeated football teams meet in Houghton to determine the likely GLIAC champ.

So, really, just 2 games that matter.

Came close to this being our road trip this year. Decided on Mankato instead due to the timing of it all...

I do look forward to visiting your shoebox of an arena sometime ;)

I would say this will be a great set of games. Tech has to stay out of the box and not give up the easy early goal, a la STL.

Does Grand Valley State suck? Haven't heard from the Monster in about a year plus.

Yes. Also, their football team hasn't had a good year.

You'll have to ask the club hockey board, Grand Valley isn't D1.

I am thinking a split down in Big Rapids. It is a tough place to play with the fans right on top of you. (Never been there, but that's what I hear). Motte is tough in the net, but if he has an off weekend a sweep wouldn't surprise me either.;)

Ferris being a "top-ranked" team at this point in the season means nothing. The poll is full of teams with one win, teams with a .500 record, teams who have yet to play their first game, or in the case of #14 Michigan a losing record. Polls mean nothing until you've played at least 10 games and won at least 70% of them.

I would have loved to attend the games, but Ferris forgot to build the visitors' side of the rink. I guess I'll have to settle for watching it in HD (or whatever they call the feed) on WCHA.TV. An FSU v MTU match-up at the GLI will be far more telling than games this early in the season. A sweep by either team means nothing at this point to predicting where each will finish in the standings.

"Are you with us?"

Ferris State is a great team. Michigan Tech might be a great team, too. Now let's find out. Bring four points back to Houghton, Techsters. Huskies Number One!

I sort of see what you are saying, but a sweep for either team is huge in where they finish in the final standings. How many teams were within 1-2 points in the middle of the WCHA at the end of last season? A four point swing can move you 5-6 spots at the end of the year.
